RICHMOND – Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam released the following statement in response to the Virginia Board of Health's decision to roll back unconstitutional restrictions to women's health care services:

"I applaud the Board of Health for its action today striking down dangerous restrictions that prevented Virginia women from having access to comprehensive reproductive health care services. 

The restrictions were politically-motivated and medically-unnecessary. The Supreme Court's ruling inWhole Woman's Health made it clear that such restrictions are unconstitutional.

Today's vote moves Virginia in the right direction to help ensure every woman in the Commonwealth can have access to the quality health care she deserves."
